The writing of this book is a work of art. I loved the imagination so well intertwined with wisdom. The reading however was mechanically grave to the point hysteria. I felt that the reading was so grave and rageful that it presented the main character, Iris, as perpetual victim. Yet no victim will go to the trouble of writing a book, as Iris does, with the long shot hope of being heard by someone lost.
Though i love audio books i reccomend reading this one.
When a gourmet chef invites you to dinner your mouth waters in anticipation and if you are served a meal that leaves you uninspired and bored you end up disappointed. Why nora Ephron serves us such a tasteless dish in this writingis a mistery that I hope she will not repeat. I am the guest she aimed this meal at- a 56 year old woman.
